Osteopathy is a system of manual therapy that treats the whole body based on biomechanical principles. Using a range of techniques, osteopathy looks for the cause of a problem and then treats the cause to remove the symptoms. As such, osteopathy is used to treat musculoskeletal problems as well as other functional disorders of the body.
The original Benes Osteopathic Clinic at South Yarra was over 50 years old, having been established by the late Jîrî Benes in the 1950's. With the practice now continuing to operate at Preston, it is one of the oldest and longest continually operating osteopathic clinics in Australia.
Eva studied at the British School of Osteopathy and graduated in 1985. Eva was involved in establishing the first government accredited osteopathy course at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (now RMIT University) in 1988, teaching there several years and for many years she was a clinical examiner for the course.
Eva's focus area is sports injuries and she has treated Olympians, AFL footballers, cricketers, runners, netballers and water ski racers. As part of her focus, Eva provides voluntary osteopathy support to the Macleod Football Club, A Division 1 team in the Northern Football League for the last 10 years
Osteopaths respect the body's natural self-regulating ability, and only intervene when pain and discomfort take away from day to day activities. Through proper consultation, diagnosis and treatment Osteopathy assists in improving mobility, structural stability and alleviating pain and symptoms.
These benefits transfer directly into the sports sector where injuries are a common part of participating in contact and non-contact activities. Eva has an extensive history of treating elite athletes including, footballers, netballers, cricketers, runners and extreme sports athletes. Athletes commonly seek out Osteopaths when injured for the broad range of benefits they provide, such as; restoring movement to an injured area, improving range of movement to the injured area, alleviating degree of pain and assisting in rehabilitation/prevention management plans to ensure that there is no reoccurrence of the injury.
